"Belua?" Erret asks, bandages wrapped around one of her legs and covering half of her face since the healers apparently couldn't use their magic to fix sprains or a dislocated joint. Personally I think they didn't want to touch her to use their magic, and they're lucky my guts were nearly spilling out or I'd have given them the same treatment she got....or you know an indian burn. Crap I can't even make myself laugh from shitty jokes I'm telling myself, crap. I hang my head and sigh, my breath turning the air absolutely frigid, which just adds the finishing to touch to the generally hopeless air hanging about today.

"Belua?" Erret asks again, shaking and prodding my arm with worry as I close my eyes, trying to think and ponder without falling into a cursing fit or simply going silent "Belua are you okay "Belua? Lady Belua are you alright? Speak to me? You never go silent, you always have something to say so....why are you so quite. Please you're scaring me master"

I open an eye and see the black tears filling her eyes, and that just crushes my heart with all the other weight I'm dealing with now. Yeah, don't need to ruin this day anymore.

"Yeah, just stuck on what's happened yesterday, thinking. Don't know what to say to be honest" I say looking up "Since I don't want to be disrespectful"

"Oh" Erret says looking back up at the graveyard we cleaned out together, as Cornbibus and Alimofa read off the last rights of the people who weren't lucky as the rest off us "....it isn't your fault, remember, the martyr is honored above kings"

Yeah, still makes me feel like crap though. Even if it wasn't anyone I know, I still feel bad about the losses of the night. Even if it was no one who's name I know. Weeb crew got out with a few scars, so did black and steve. Elrond got new confidence so just fuck me, and Oda....well besides nearly becoming a pin cushion he's alright. Now none of them are friends quite yet, but I'm starting to like them ya know? since I've been using them as my rag tag militia so often lately. So one hand, its a good thing none of them died or I'd feel worse, I can just tell.It could've been worse, Cornibus told me, that mathius guy told me. Fuck even Elrond told me that. But that doesn't stop it from...I dunno, just weighing me down I guess.

three players out of the fifteen or so randoms who came with us, who's names I didn't know died during the unnatural night while miss wolf tits tried to rip my head off with her teeth. And that just makes me feel guilty. And five of the red shrikes ended up dying....mostly cause I melted them before hand. Not really guilty about that one as much.

>>2192138

"And so, with these last words. I consign these brave souls to the fields that are promised" Cornibus bellows to the sky, reading from a book larger than Erret, held up by a few townsfolk "to the realm of the guards, where they may see paradise free of sin and hate, and the curse we all share. Do not cry for them, for they go before us with words of victory on our lips, to the hollowed halls of the bloody warlord, the master of war, in the arms of the maiden crone, now walking side by side with both her faces. Do not cry, for they have died glorious"

Still dead though.

"You have my word, their names will be added to the ledger of matyrs" Alimofa says, causally as she walks over to me, having been staring at me this entire time "And you, young Pangolynn, we need to tralk so I may see if....well you can have your name added to the wall of noble blood, have you considered my offer"

"oh? Noble? did you see her worthy as I do, my dear colleague?" Cornibus says proudly, almost like he's been practicing for this which seems....unlike him.

Fuck, now everyone is looking at me. and they're burning incense or something! its making my eyes water and smells horrible. fuckers!

"So, again. I offer you knighthood and more, blessed Belua, Kind master and selfless warrior" She says softly, making Erret smile

I have to ask is the knight a advanced class or just a basic class?
>>
"Well I" I say with a smile, scratching my ears with my black, nearly claw like nails as my tail curls around my legs "hmm, Well"

"I do need an answer soon, you realize" Alimofa says calmly, not letting me see her expression behind her mask

"Erret? What do you think?" I ask, looking over to her as her smiles fades as it always does, her brow furrowing in though as she leans against her rusted scythe as everything goes silent and I can tell some of the more zealous cunts in the crowd don't like that I'm asking a tainted for advice. But I can hear the players who fought with me laughing or in the case of weeb force making that horrible daaw noise they do.

"Well, my master" She says leaning towards me, hanging on the haft of her scythe, her braids hanging over her face as her scarf moves with every word she speaks....but I can tell she's smiling from her eyes "My kind and most noble master. I think you deserve it! it is an honor to have you blood be sanctified, and have your name be given noble ring. You've certainly always worked and served assiduously. So I think you've earned it, Lady Belua! though you are already most noble to my eyes, I feel being a knight would suit you well"

"So?" Alimofa asks again as I shrug "I am quite busy, and would like an answer before duty calls me away" .

"Save it for when the dead aren't staring at us, chr" I say bluntly "gods"


"She is right, maybe hold off until the service is over" Cornibus says as the librarian's knight just sighs

"It would be respectful" Oda chimes in

"Yeah, don't be such a" Mathius says before Alimofa cuts him off

"you have not earned the respect to talk back to me" she says angrily

Wait, I misunderstood that. Do you mean defense can't level up at all? OR that we have to choose to level it up manually?

If we can't level it up at all, I'll pick um.. Dex I guess as the next closest thing.

Sorry HM. I think I made the magic mistake last time we leveled too.

>>2192307
You can level it if you have a form of natural armor

also certain classes raise it as well

k, so that means we can level our defense, because of our body stuff, but Erret, probably not huh.

Then my vote changes to 2 learn 1 dex, level reaver.

"May the songs of our praise and prayers reach thou who now art in heaven" Cornibus says closing the book with a flick off his wrist "Now let us proceed to the traditional ritual to honor the dead, all who fought beside them please step forward and partake off the holy spirits.....Belua? May I give you the honor, as you were the commander?"

It feels like he's trying to make me feel bad, but I know he isn't, this is just how Toladar works. The dead are honored, especially if they died protecting others as Martyrs, I mean its the same way as it was back in my world. But the difference here is how they choose to celebrate them. Then again I guess this is just like pouring one out for your homies who ain't here no more. Yeah, this isn't too bad. Still makes me feel guilty with how he said it.

I nod, not wanting to look disrespectful, and because I could really lose a drink after all I've been through in the last day or two. Not to drown my sorrows, just to unwind and celebrate being alive I guess.

Walking forward I smile as I kneel by the small stone altar set in the middle of the graveyard. I grab the small glass cup of steaming liqour and lift it to my lips.

taking a sip, I start to stand back up. But then an idea comes to me

What do I do?
[] say a few words to them
[] Remember the proper way to send them off 1d20+learning
[] give a speech to try and make the air a little less glum
[] pour the spirits on the altar
[] Wait for the service to end, and finally check out my knew house
[] Hey Alimofa, I think I have your answer
[] Hug Erret
[] Make a scene, and ask the others what they think I should do
[] write in

NOW

Erret's hp: 570+ 280 = 850
MP: 750+ 50 = 800

Offensive skills

[] Armor Break *attempt to break an enemy's armor, uses str+ weapon*

[] Flurry of strikes *swing wildly, hitting the target multiple times *a maximum of five, using a different roll for each strike*

[] Feint *Attempt to distract the opponent with a false strike, uses Dex+speed*

I should do this a little more proper shouldn't I? But I don't have any flowers or anything to leave here, not to mention that praying after I stood up will make me look a bit like a spaz. And I can't have that can I? But how do I send these fellahs off without looking like an idiot? how do you do this properly? Wracking my brain, I swirl my drink around my hand as I try to figure out what I have to do to show my respect to them and everyone else here. I frown, and reach for my sword. Not really meaning to, its just instinctive. And that's when I remember it. The proper way to show respect to poor bastards who died in battle. You have to leave a small mark on any monument left in their name. Like this alter. Quickly drawing my blade across the surface, I leave a gouge in it just above the names, carving BP into before I pull it away and take another sip of the shot, dripping some of it over the letter as I turn back around and begin to walk to Erret

Elrond goes next, and so on as I stand silently by Erret, cornibus, and Alifmofa. I guess some of them realized what I was doing and start to scratch their initials above the names marked on the alter, even dripping a little of the spirits over it as everyone else watches.

Some of the townsfolk and red shrikes start to play a song to send these fellows off. I keep watching intently, until green bean gets up and starts to weeb all over the place with a dramatic speech.

"Hmm, our part is done" Cornibus says, tapping his staff and vanishing in a puff of silver and gold smoke

"yes, it is. Funeral are always tiring and you still have your new abode to investigate with me" Alimofa says, leaning towards me as I head down the hill leading out of the graveyard as Erret quickly sneaks off to try and carve her initials above the plaque.

"And you're going to ask me if I have my answer for you yet?" I ask as I hear cheering behind me, as some of the villagers who fought with me and their kids wave me goodbye. We stop at the crest of the hill

"Always word your sentences wisely, young acolyte, for we are no longer in the eyes of the dead' She says, with a smug air in her voice "if you need more time, I can understand"

What do I do?
[] Tell her I need more time
[] say after we see my manor
[] Well I need to buy a new shield and such before I can
[]Invite someone to come with us to my manor (who? besides erret)
[] ask her why she thinks someone like me can be a knight?
[] Accept
[] decline, and say maybe later
[] may I make a few demands

"And why would someone like me be a knight?" I ask stepping closer to her "or should I say, why should I be a knight, or why do I deserve it?"

She reaches for her mask, and pulls it down just enough to show me her tired, dull eyes, just filled with the signs of stress and overwork. But when I see them I step back, feeling like she's looking through me...or into me. It has to be because of the color of her eyes, a bright unnatural blue like candy or a bad energy drink, right?

"I mean, even at the best of times, I'm not very polite and respectful" I say shrugging with a smirk "and sure I've saved a few people but am I really the kind of person to go around touting nobility? I mean be honest here, I am not the model of a knight am I?"

"You have a point, but you are young and despite being rebellious and flippant you can show respect, manners and politeness" She says still staring right through me "When you can be bothered to at least. Yes you aren't anything close to the romanticized form of knight, but you'll do well enough. But why I believe you can be one? and will do well as one? Simple, several factors. first you were raised by one of foremost minds in both arcane and divine matters, you've been visited by the gods, giving you credence. So you're already unusual and with your cryomancy and creativity I'd say you're a force to be reckoned with in the making. Besides that you risked your own life to save others, and in doing so proved yourself to be a leader of men, and somewhat a tactician. If we hone those traits, you'll become a very good knight indeed. And of course"

"Master?!" Erret yells from the hill "Master wait for me! Wait!"

"Your mind is unclouded by prejudices, despite losing your parents to the tainted, you still treat another like something akin to a daughter" She says "And though you just love toying with others and causing trouble, when the time calls for it, you can show kindness and mercy, even if it takes a lot to do so. the crone saw something in you, and so do I. And your deeds, impressive for most men, so do you accept my logic?"

I look back to make sure Erret doesn't trip over herself and look back to Alimofa with a grin

"Sure, just let me buy a new shield before we go about checking my new house yet" I say as she draws her sapphire sword "Just don't complain when they realize I'm not fit to be one and demote me when I have my fun"

Oh this is going to be so exploitable, people trust knights. this is going to be fun

"Well, by the rights given to me by the gods, in their eyes I name you ser Pangolynn and add your name to list of noble and respected titles" She says, tapping my shoulders with her blade as I kneel down, as Erret trots up behind us, panting from running all the way down here while holding her skirt up "you will enjoy all blessing given to such families and a fief of land....Carolton, to rule as you see fit, I'd recommend displacing the mayor as he is most....unqualified for the position"

cont
>>
>>2192655
Erret gasps, sounding so happy I've decided to better my life by moving up the social ladder so to speak

"And in accepting this duty, this burden of faith and temptation of pride, greed, and gluttony" Alimofa says, pulling her mask up to cover her face again "You are expected to protect the land and its people, the worship of the seven great and wise lords, and all things good and wholesome in toladar, and to strike down threats to its intergrity in lands both in and outside its borders. you accept then? knowing you can be called at any time to throw your life down"

"Fuck yeah" I say, covering my mouth as a horrible silence falls, oh crap did I just say that? shit. the next moments are the tensest I've ever felt besides walking up to fight that werewolf bitch

"You fought a bringer of the night" She says with a sigh "I'll accept such a crude reply.....and Erret, I must give you my thanks and respects. most would've given into the hate and spite others throw your way. Always remember your great mistake, and what it could've wrought. Live well both of you, when you're done....shopping I'll be waiting for you"

Erret smiles, looking like that was one hell of a compliment even though it sounded like an insult to me

also remember you have 2 levels to choose right now

1 Cryomancer

>>2192695
Add one for Cryomancer as well as Knight then
>>
also
[] 6 attributes to assign

and before you choose the new class

Just to be sure everyone's seen them


Ruler 150 hp,+4 willpower +2 learning. Runs a city/cities/ town/towns or something similar. Unlocked by taking control of a place.

Ruler Special ability 1: Taxes *Every month or so, you collect taxes from those living in your land, the ammount increasing by how many people live in your place or how rich they are*

Ruler Special ability 2: Bodyguard *you get a body guard, fully customizable in every way...where'd it come from anyways?*

Ruler special ability 3: Management *You can put money into upgrading you place/land, army, living standards, and palace*

Every level, you can either get another body guard, a special regiment for your army, or a special building/construction for your land


And knight

Knight: 260 hp: +2 defense, +2 will, +2 str. A knight of a kingdom, owns some land and is bound by honor. Unlocked by being knighted

Knight special ability 2: Landed *you're given a fief of land, which produces materials for crafting*

Knight special abilty 3: Martyr *You gain a bonus to defense while fighting to protect others, the bonus icreasing as you near death*

Gets more reknown and land as they level, as well as lower knights and servants


also since you took cryomancer again, your ice resistance and damage has increased
>>
>>2192695
Right, Knight of course
>>
>>2192721
Ok then so I'm changing to my vote to Knight and
1 dex 1 speed 1 strength 1 learning and 2 will
>>
>>2192721
Still going with Knight, I like it's bonuses and stats way more

2 defense

2 willpower

2 learning, if we can level this one up, I'll go with the flow of votes if we can't
>>
>>2192735
I'll second this, it sounds about right to me. 2 is our limit for points we can put in something right?

Because if not, since we already have a good base now, we could min-max a little bit and choose like 4 in something just to break a stat.
>>
>>2192721
Still want a level of Ruler at somepoint
But I will go with everyone else and go with Knight for now
>>
>>2192754
You could pump all six into one stat
>>
>>2192754
True, but I'd personally spread out just a bit more before we start specializing. In one or two more levels we should probably pick a path and stick with it if my RPG instincts are correct
>>
>>2192758
Oh right
1 str
1dex
2 will
2 learning
>>
>>2192770
Learning would probably be smart, if we did >>2192759. Since we already have a good base, it might cause us to well, learn faster.

But yah, I'll stick with seconding the 2/2/2. I think it was a good choice.

alright so

"Congratulations Belua, you've certainly earned it at least in my eyes" Erret says happily as Alimofa begins to fade into an snow drift, tilting her head curiously "its always nice seeing people getting properly rewarded for their work no? Should we celebrate master? I could make a treat and I'm sure the townsfolk would be honored to pitch in and"

"Hey hey, cool it Erret" I say lowering my hand and tail as she grins widely, looking like she's about to go with the rapture from sheer joy "we can party after we see our new house"

"Oh, right, got ahead of myself. its just so exciting! how many in my shoes would be able to serve a noble knight!" Erret cries out happily, tapping her scythe on the ground

"Yeah it is" I say nodding "still kind of feel like crap though"

"It wasn't your fault you know" Erret says softly, making me smirk

"Thanks I really needed that" I say dully, as she smiles happily "Now lets go ruin this towns economy and make every one else jealous"

I walk back into town, noticing that not everyone in it went to the funerals, namely the guards and some of the older and the younger kids. I smile as I hear my name on the air.

"Good day Miss belua"

"Glad you came back, want to share a drink, think we could be fast friends"

"HEY you're belua right? don't have any friends yeah? Mind if we...I mean you join our guild, you seem like a badass"

"How the hell did you come back from that"

"I thought a lot more of you were going to die, I guess I owe you and my friends a drink....wanna join"

"Ah Lady Pangolynn, I was going to offer some gifts to the crone, could you help me"

"You save my papa Bell yoo ya, You're like a real hero"

"Glad Cornbibus trained you"

"Sorry about insulting your servant, lady Pangolynn"

"Ah, back already. Well before you run off to kill more sinners, on behalf of all the lads. I want to say thank you for protecting the town so often, you're a real good person"

"Good evening Miss Belua"

Oh that is one hell of an ego boost, I may have to stick around this town for awhile! cause that is enough to get me high! its amazing having that many people treating you like a saint. And it feels good....maybe for reasons besides my ego? I dunno, its nice helping people to. And I can always have my fun with them later or somewhere else.

Almost want to bask in it, But hey at least people might stop being such cunts to poor Little Erret. But I ignore them besides waving, and saying good day or hello or whatever as I walk to where I need to go.

Aka the smithy, cause everytown has one. The old Iron Dreugar that runs the places begins to move the sign to open and smiles as he sees me, the stone dreugar who I am pretty sure is his daughter napping against his shop

"Ah, Belua, do you need anything?" he asks, wiping his hands clean on a towel "know we haven't met, but from the talk in the town I know ya. Heard ye be blessed by the gods"

" Well not sure if that's the right word" I say shrugging

"Well i'd say ye are" he says smiling "how else would ya know about the taint and undead eh? divine guidance I say

I don't say a word and just smile, knowing I caused the latter of those two.

"Just a good guess is all, besides Erret here can sense taint" I say smiling as he nods

"Ah, a living alarm" He says "one use for her I guess....anyways, you passing by one some mission from the gods, or do ya wanna shop ahaha"

"I need a new shield" I say frowning "Blew my last to bits fighting a werewolf, don't ask"

"oh is that all?" He asks "Hey, Veli, get to work, customer"

His daughter growns and covers her face with her hand

"Hmmmm" I say as he walks off to kick his daughter awake, grumbling

"A living alarm?" Erret asks, pouting and looking insulted

"I'm up, I'm up" His daughter groans, nearly batting him down as she stands up and yawns, dragging her feat to the forge behind the shop as the man opens up his door and smiles "old grump won't even let him nap"

"So come in, you need to see my wares, unless you want custom work" He says cheerfully "uh your...Erry can come in as well, in case you're buying for her as well"

"Well I know what I want, a knight's shield, since I've just been made one" I say a little smugly "the toughest piece of metal you can give me, don't want it to dent like the old one"

"Oh, OH! Oh I am sorry my lord I did not hear, forgive me casual attitude" He laughs "Well come in, I'll pen up your heraldy and paint it on the front.....or carve it if you wish, both actually. On the house yeah, all purchases half off eh"

"How generous of you" Erret says, shooting me a look as she whispers "brown noser"

I chuckle as I follow the short man into his shop, as he rubs his hands together

"Well you're in luck, I had made a collection of knight's shields...well the standard of them as I heard one of the seven's blessed knights was in town" He says, running his hands over several kite shields with marks of the seven painted on them "but I didn't know which came, so I made several....including unmarked ones if their entourage followed"

"Oh she wouldn't have needed one, I don't she uses such things" Erret chimes in

"Or would buy from a place like this, she's a little uptight" I say as I grab one of the shields and lift it up "So which one of these are the most durable"

"oh that would be the ones I reinforced and weighted" the smith says from behind my shoulder "Normally they'd be sixty gold pieces buuut"

"Can I see your special materials? probably going to get one of these...and can you add some extras to it? like sharpen its edges? add blades or spikes or things like that?" I ask as he frowns

"Of course, for a cheap price of course" He laughs "Well I'll have Veli start the forge to make you a new one yes?"

"And can I see your armor? Plate if possible?" I ask as he nods and continues on

Want to put all four of these in four different quadrants of the heraldry?
or choose 1?

to me it'd make sense for the former as Belua would have no idea of the hidden meaning of heraldic images

Honestly I would rather wait until we have someone who can tell us what the various symbols are supposed to mean

May we carry on the legacy of those heroes who came before us, that their steel can still serve to defend the people of this land. Sorry, symbolic things like that really get to me in the best way possible.

And we should sell all of the random fodder items from the last battle, we can get more later.

Personal heraldry: Separated into four quadrants.

The upper right is a field of black with an icy blue pangolin resting on it, with the holy symbols of the seven arranged around it
The upper left is a dragon wrapped around a tower keep on a pale blue field
The bottom right is a crude 2d depiction of herself, stepping on the back of a screaming and crying demon begging for mercy, on a pale blue field
the bottom left is a grinning dragon depicted in icy blue, set on a black field. the scales on its back and tail resemble a pangolin's. it is also wearing a dapper looking top hat

this good?

>>2193264
Sounds cool to me, equal parts actual heraldry and things Belua thinks are funny. Which makes it all the more accurate to represent her I think
>>
>>2193264
Works for me

Also I forgot these in my vote
Star metal
living ore
and Infused gold
>>
Also, if I got this right

layered chain (for a total of 8 extra defense and -1 speed)
with a mage's armored hood and cloak (raising it to +9 while all of its worn, + the shield's bonus)\

60 gp spent so far in total

with infused gold it becomes 65 (affects armor to)
with star metal and gold it becomes 75 (affects armor as well)
with all three and living ore it becomes 105 gp spent in total

and the shield extras are free (for 1 or 2 of them only)

Armor descriptions as on the char sheet

A set of chain mail. Golden chains linked together with dull grey metal with glowing specks in it. Odd blue chunks of crystal grow from between the links and inside them, sometimes forming sapphire like and icy blue gems on her armor. It comes in the form of a chain Hauberk layed over a simple leather vest, leather pants with chains sewn into them with two greave fronts (made of the same material) set in front of them. As well as a pair of hardy leather gloves with chains set on the back

a thick, reinforced kite shield meant for knights, with her personal heraldry on the front of it. Made of a mixture of gold, dull grey star metal and living ore, the edge is sharpened and is lined with a sharp crystal edge

Over her robes and armor she wears a cloak with another hood, both reinforced with a thread of metal in the fabric, its a lighter shade of blue than her hooded robes, nearly white with specks of gold in it.

Layered chain set (2 defense legs and arms, 1 defense hands, 3 defense chest -1 speed) (special properties: Infused gold: Easier to break, but eases up magic casting by acting as a focus. Star metal: random effect (1d100), Living ore (self repairing and shining)

"So what kind of material are you thinking of" He asks before I raise my hand and he goes silent, standing at attention, smiling nervously from having a knight, even a new one in his shop. Or because of erret looking over and messing with some of his more fragile looking helmets.

"Oh I am sorry if I was speaking out of turn or" he says, scratch his neck and tugging at his collar as I sigh

"I want the armor and shield made out of an alloy of infused gold, star metal and living ore" I say quickly, knowing my old stand by for mage armor back when this wasn't real. gold for magic power slash lowered fail chance (assuming this works the same here), star metal for the laughs, living ore so I don't have to repair it every time a hiver bites me in the ass "as for the armor give me layered chain, I assume you know what that is? I don't want to blow all my dosh or slow myself down to much with the weight of it"

"St...star metal" he stammers "Infused gold is rather cheap but....star metal is an odd choice besides for a collectors item, it could have a bad or odd magic to it are you WAIT did you say LIVING ORE"

"of course, you said its half off at least yeah?" I say with a grin as her stammers and I frown "oh, so I'll just tell everyone you refused to service a knight and gouged her on your"

"its fine, its fine, it shouldn't take long to make its just....what are you drawing on my ledger?" He asks as I grin and rip the paper out, showing it to him as he jolts as Erret knocks off a stand off full plate

"My personal heraldry" I say happily as he squints and leans closer to me, looking up

"And what's that writing next to it?" He asks as I giggle "And....that's quite a complex task, I mean I...I'll still do it but"

"Oh that's some notes for a new magical trick I came up with, just now" I say dropping the paper in his hand "I call it frost wall, so how much will this cost me? and how long"

He stares at me with a sad look, like I just kicked his dog or burned his shop down.

"Around four....a hundred gold pieces, and well with these specifics and hour or so" He says as I pat his shoulder and smile, as Erret gasps "oh no" over the sound of shattering glass

"thanks, see you then jeeves" I say happily as I swagger towards the exit "come on erret"

"Coming, I didn't break anything" She says, far to anxiously to be telling the truth. I just giggle and shake my head

Charmer (69) (Makes the armor more form fitting/ feminine. Also passively charms those attracted to the caster, making them nice and in battle stunning, dazing or even charming them at random)

[The entire set of armor also has a strange look to it, somehow accentuating and drawing attention to her figure rather than hiding it as armor should. While its still armor and cover's her fully, its oddly form fitting and shows off her body, giving it a feeling of being skimpier/ sensual than it is and somehow making her seem more feminine in general while wearing it.
It has an odd, almost oily luster to it]

I'm starting to think we have a particular patron up high, not that I mind

Deny death "while you wield this shield, you can avoid death's grasp (re-roll once a day, or toss of a poison or similar effect, or survive something you simply couldn't survive at a cost), by damaging the shield you can get
more effects/ more uses out of the base

Appearance changed

Praise be the the Crone! Holy crap I'm glad She likes us!

"So where are we going to now, my master?" Erret asks as I smirk and shrug "The manor or?"

"Well" I say, as I notice a mother and her little kid, not a brat since he at least looks like a good kid, but that could change quickly "Besides basking in all this praise for a bit? I don't think I want to make any new friends yet"

"Oh? the weird ones aren't your friends yet?" She asks, looking concerned and a little sad

"Well, not sure yet, we don't really spend time together just hanging out you know, we only really meet when there's a crisis or we need a little help dealing with evil and things like that. I'm just not sure" I say, ranting a bit, explaining to her "Need time to figure it out or just chat with them awhile"

"Oh, well to be honest Belua I think some of them are loud, crass and obnoxious" Erret says with a huff "And just simply strange but....they're good men, I hope we can be their friends, if not soon someday"

"oh that's a little....blunt" I say, more than a little shocked as Erret looks at the ground like a guilty puppy "especially for you, Erret do you not like them or"

"oh no, they're excellent men its just....well they're odd, and have a foreign air around them. at the least they seem somewhat, faithless and that makes me worry for them" She says sadly "but maybe they're just shocked from recent events? I don't know....but Elrond is simply...he's been oh so rude since you saved him, it makes me angry"

"yeah, strange innit, well enough gossip Erret, or I'll really start up a huff" I laugh as one of the older men in town makes the crones mark next to me, taps my shoulder, smiles and walks away looking proud of himself. "Lets gets some pie and go to my"

And like that, at least three young men and one woman start to nearly fight over paying for my food. Which makes me grin and cackle under my breath devilishly.
-

"What took you so long to buy some?" Alimofa says, standing on the road leading from the town to, where a sign calls "Something manor" as the name has been burnt and broken off, with rusted metal fences leading the way to it "You got pie?"

Erret, takes another bite of her slice, her nose smudged with blueberry

"Yeah so what?" I ask, eating mine, licking honey and grease from my lips

"You'll need a lot of discipline before you can lead armies" She says in a mocking way "And I need to talk to Cornibus about his teaching habits....and eating habits. as I am guessing his sweet tooth passed onto you"

I chuckle, almost choking on my pie

"Hehehe" she giggles in a dignified way, the first time since I've met her...even when I was a little kid in the world "seems the crone nearly took you into her grasp, now we must be off, I called one of my collegues and he has a habit of being"

"Gods damn Alimofa! where are you!" A greasy, crackly sort of boston scented voice groan. does she work with....wait I know who this is, just from questing, god this fucker never shuts up "first you call me, acting all scared, and then when I don't reply since you have the fucking high and mighty dragon slayer with you, you scream at me in person while me and simon are at an inn. Do you know how bad my week has been? this had better be important, and damn exciting if it "will interests me" I had to deal with simon's fatherly instincts over a demon touched...."

"Thas, calm down" She says as a weasel faced anmd like man with a mop of greasy black hair, comes stomping down the road with a metal, spanish looking helmet. He looks down at me and erret with his hook like, bent nose. God I hate this guy, he's a cunt....but even if I hate him, I actually like him to. he's funny when you're not playing an evil game or tainted. I mean his quests were some of the best in the game.

Yep, knew it was Thas.
Wait
WAIT
a second knight of the seven and of the crone! FUCK I forgot how important he was! since he always acts like a crappy, conscripted soldier or gang banger.

"Ah" he says, his expression lightening "So death has embraced you as well? I can see it....I can see the maiden crone's arms around your neck, not the crone maiden either. Just the crone. How odd, how wonderful! I knew you weren't lying to me you old hag! Ah, its so rare to see one who does not fear her advances. Child, tell me your name"

......What? Okay yeah, can't trust what I remember from the game or my own memories from this world as every fiber of my being is telling me this guy is supposed to be a cunt/ fuckwit

"See?' Alimofa says oh so smugly

What do I say?

Also its called Crypt's door

a thick, reinforced kite shield meant for knights, with her personal heraldry on the front of it. Made of a mixture of gold, dull grey star metal and living ore, the edge is sharpened and is lined with a sharp crystal edge. However the crone has touched the shield, making the metal appeared to be aged/tarnished, the crystals being a cloudy and white. The rivets seem to be made of bone. and the handle is shaped as two hands holding the wielder's hand. Set in the center of the heraldry is the crone's holy symbol, a skeletal hand holding a blooming rose.


Dust clings to the shield, and it is constantly cold, feeling....simply dead

When in doubt, offer the super paladins pie. Also holy shit Thas is important now! Well, more important anyway. Oh this is going to be good! Can we get his special shadow weed?
>>
"Belua Pangolynn" I say, wiping my mouth before digging into more pie, making alimofa sigh and hang her head

"Wait, Grandmizer Cornibus' little ankle biter?" he asks, frowning before he laughs "My you've grown into quite the woman! if you weren't half my age I'd eh"

"Thas" ice queen says shaking her head as he laughs

"Just making her feel better about herself, some light teasing. You'd think I'd actually...ew" He says, frowning as he sees Erret giving him a death glare for both making a pass at me and for it being a joke "oh, right, forgot about her to. you mad at the flirt or that it was just a joke to break the ice? eh?"

"You're acting so unusually unprofesional" Alimofa groans as he shrugs

"Hey, I am allowed to be excited after being lectured by Dal'tross for days about how I need to be more accepting and other basic lessons from the scriptures" He sighs, his eyes narrowing "besides, she won't think I'm a death obsessed freak right"

He looks to me, I look away as I can feel his stare

"Two knights of the seven?" I ask, looking back to him "FUCK!!"

"Master!" Erret gasps as Alimofa just stares at me as Thas chuckles

"See you're not as uptight as cornibus or Ali over here.....though if she knighted you it means you have a sense of duty yeah? " He asks "hmm, perfect combination. Anyways, How? how did....I'll ask you later, we have business yes, Alimofa?"

"Yes, but she is part of it" She says

"I guessed that' He says bluntly "Its her house or something yeah? also, before I forgot, what the tainted hells is your little....fans? name again? I never bothered to learn it before, sorry....to both of you. Shame what happened to you...I want to say Erry?"

"Its erret" I say kindly as Erret smiles and looks overjoyed

"yeah, shame what looking at a wrong book will do" He says "So you think you'll need my hand in death to deal with whatever tainted hell is infesting it?"

"Yes, as a dire did live there and practice unseen acts of worship and degradation while he broke the most horrible taboo" Alifmofa says as I take another bite of pie

"Oh, you want some pie? I got one for lady Alimofa, but she's a stick in the the mud"" I say, not even getting a rise out of her.

"afterwards" He says dully

What do I do?

42, forgot to add a one

while in armor and with a shield
out of armor its 16. Which means passively, can get as hard to crack as a good set of armor, or nearly as much as little green, so more than weaker hivers
>>
>>2193732
I mean with a 42 in full armor and defense curl is there anything that could actually harm us when we are like that?
>>
>>2193734
demons, fae nobility, dragons, high end elementals, high level Burst damage focused pcs.

Nothing we want to meet

"Calm down Erret, he's just being nice" I say softly as she nearly squees, gripping her staff tightly as we walk behind the arguing knights "It isn't anything to start smoking at the ears over"

"I know, but he's one of the gods champions! its is a pretty big deal to be treated like that by one of them" She says, grinning before she frowns again and the little color she got in her face fades from it "At least for tainted like me"

"I know, but he's just being nice to you, and as rare as that is and it really shouldn't be, its still just being polite" I say sweetly as she smiles a bit, still looking a little too put out "but you are right, its still a real compliment from him, considering who he is. but don't forgot kindness shouldn't be kept from you and isn't something to celebrate when someone with some common fucking decency comes around"

And now her smile is back for real, dodged a bullet there. And after that I notice the two near demi gods arguing with themselves about what they should do, if we should come or if any of this is even necessary, and that makes me curious, terribly so. And because I want to annoy Alimofa a little more.

"Do you really think its that bad?" I ask as thas groans

"it shouldn't be, just burn his room and personal effects and it should be fine" He says calmly "Maybe bless the place for a day or two, it'll be fine"

"I'm worried about what's hidden, the books, the rites, we need to find anything that can be corrupting and deal with it" She says sternly

"He was a dire, not a demon or eldrtich" Thas says shaking his head

"Also you seem a little cranky, why is that if I can ask" I say with my trolling grin as he groans

"Well you see" He says pinching the bridge of his nose "My best friend found a girl who made a pact with a demon, he seems to think she was forced into it, I don't trust her but he's practically given her his blessing as the champion of all seven of the council to...I dunno, it just...the gods don't listen to her or see her for a reason. For Errt its because she's been shrouded, for her I think its cause she's been well....swallowed up"

"Oh, yes, Simon is always so forgiving" Alimofa says

" I haven't said anything to spiteful since he....well you know what happened" Thas says as we walk through a thicket of thorns and dead brambles, a busted gate sitting in front of an overgrown path leading to an now wild garden "Alright, don't touch anything"

"Wow, this place is" I say looking around at the broken fountain, fallen trees, wild looking bushes, the grasses that come up to my shoulders, the barely seeable roads and paths snaking through the little forest that's been made here, the blood stains and what look suspiciously like human bones. The cracked and fallen walls. Oh and look towards the house, over grown vines and a few smashed or dimly tinted windows "this place is a fucking shithole!"

"Yeah" Thas says nodding

"It....could use a little work" Erret says slowly "Well a lot of work, and language master, we're in good company"

"Sorry its a little surprising how horrible this place is" I say pushing my hair up and sighing "Not to mention that feeling like someone's going to stab me in the back"

"Yeah, this place is filled tragedy and...that feeling" Erret whimpers as Thas walks forward, while I make a mental note of what I need to change simply in the gardens "c..could I walk in front of you for once master"

"yes, of course, no need to ask" I say softly as I notice the knights are moving ahead "Wait, don't leave us in this deliverance looking"

they both give me strange looks

"this hellish place?" I ask as they shrug "sorry a little scatter brained right now, didn't choose the right word"

"don't touch a thing" thas says, pushing the door open, revealing a chandiler filling the front room with dim light, and various cobwebs, spiders and other little critters running back in the shadows. Also claw marks, lots and lots of claw marks everywhere.

"if you wander, tell me of anything foul you find" Alimofa says as she walks the other way from thas, and I realize I have no idea where to go. I look between them, rub my chin and smile walk over to the hallway thas walked down, stepping over the broken door laying in front of it

"Alright, lets find the bathroom, need to be sure the plumbing is okay" I say, looking back to Erret, trying not to look at the paintings on the staring eyes ....since that's all that's left of them "And we'll need to get some new windows....cleaners and"

"Alright, I can do it" Erret says simply, making stop dead in my tracks

"Don't fall behind" Thas says "Don't want to spend an hour looking for you in here"

And we'll end here

Omake: Part 12
-------

Hades strode through a curtain of willow branches. "Brutus, there you are! The poor souls, I'll take them in while you stand gua--"

"IMPOSTER!" Brutus swung his spear slamming Hades in the gut so hard he doubled over.

Hades moaned. He lifted his head to face his guardian. "B-brutus, what are you doing?"

A fierce kick to the jaw sent Hades arcing through the air. He landed hard tangled in his cloak.

Nymella cackled. She stepped out from her hiding place among the rocks. "You are handsome but a fool, sweet Hades. With the amulet gone, didn't you know I had full control of my powers?"

"Of course. Did you think I'd let them burn you?"

"You'd have let them chase me with torches into the forest."

"After trying to persuade them not to burn it down," he retorted.

Nymella crossed her arms and frowned petulantly. "Well, didn't you wonder why I was pretending to be trapped then?"

"I told you that you could have it for a day." Hades struggled to pull back his sleeve. Dead vines wrapped his wrist where the tree griever should have been. "Nymella, you think the lord of the underworld could be fooled by this?"

"Spear him!" she cried.

"With pleasure." Brutus hefted his spear and advanced to where Hades was lying.

A twin spear burst through the flames of the fallen bough, struck the amulet around Brutus neck breaking the chain, and pinned it to a tree.

"Boss!" Crombe stepped through the fire carrying a shimmering mass under his arm.

Brutus patted the skin around his neck. "Crombe, you nearly killed me!"

"You can't be killed, idiot." Crombe offered a hand to Hades. "Boss, you'd better get them in there, this one under my arm is nearly gone."

Hades poked the space under Brutus's arm just to be sure something was really there. "My eye!" it croaked.

A twig snapped.


"Brutus, seize the drya--"

"Aleady done, boss." Brutus held tight on to Nymella's arm as her feet dragged over the earth, trying to pull her in the opposite direction.

Hades walked up to her curling a blackened finger under the tree griever. "Thank you, for holding on to it for me."

"This way!" a voice carried on the wind. "Careful now!"

"The villagers!" Hades snapped his fingers. "Come with me, all of you."

The dead, who up until this point had their backs against the cave wall intently watching the events that would decide their fate, followed Hades one by one as he ushered them into the underworld.

First was the goblin-creature, followed by the two blind parrots, the man with an arrow through his eye, and finally the elderly woman who shook Hades hand gratefully as she passed him.

Now there was a chorus of voices, and they were getting nearer.

"Quick, now!" Hades called from inside the cave.

"Uh, boss," Brutus said. "She's not dead."

Nymella's face was squished flat against an invisible barrier.


"Then kill her!"

Crombe snapped Nymella's neck and dragged her into the cave.

Omake: Part 12 (b)
-------

Daniel, the paper boy came choking into the light of the fire. "I've lost the feeling, I swear the death creature was just here."

The man in the longcoat arrived next. "Daniel, boy are you sure you saw it come this way?"

The mayor came wheezing around the corner. "I told you... there was nothing... up here."

"Right as always, mayor Ryan. I'm sorry Daniel, but the trail has gone cold. Let's return and help put out the fire. As the mayor said, no reason to worry about it here, the rocks will stop it."

The next day, the villagers had gotten the fire under control, and by the afternoon all but the farthest trees by the caves were put out. By some miracle, the forest was still in tact, in fact, though black with soot no tree had so much as lost a branch.

When the flames had finally died surrounding the rocks though, all of those trees had burned to the ground. The mayor stood alone on top of the hill with his hat held against his chest. Daniel laid two round pennies at the foot of the cave. But inside...

Hades sat on his giant stone throne in the bowels of the earth with a hand resting on his face.

He glanced over at the three deadlings guarding the entrance to the land of the living. Two were brawny guards, solid, immovable, standing at attention with spears ready, and the third was a beautiful dryad woman.

Hades sighed.

"Brutus, Crombe... Nymella. I'm going to take a walk. Make sure that no one comes in while I'm gone."

Brutus and Crombe saluted, but Nymella crossed her arms under her breasts and tapped her foot.

Hades smiled a charming half smile. He stood up and walked toward an arched caveway behind the throne. Once inside Hades stopped, crouched, and turned around. Placing one hand to the side of his mouth he said in a young woman's voice, "Oh Brutus, Crombe."

"Can it, boss. We've already got enough company out here,' said Crombe.

"Still think you can trick us with that old lark? We've got a woman right next to us, boss."

Hades found himself being lifted and dragged by the ear. "Ow-ow-ow, okay!"

Nymella pushed him back on to his throne.

Hades buried his face in his hands, "Kill her, I said. Why? WHY!? All I had to do was /take/ the amulet... "

"There, there, clever lord.'' Nymella patted Hades on the head. "You'll have plenty of time to think about it.

THE END.
